On August 26, the Health Sciences Library will be making changes to our off-campus proxy system so that you can now log in with your PassportID (this is the same username and password you use for other University resources – like o365 email and the UCDAccess Portal).
Why are we making this change?
Login via PassportID is more secure for you, the user. It will also be far easier for the library to manage. Just one example: in the past there has been a slight delay of up to a week before new students and employees were able to have access to off campus resources. That delay will now disappear.
Here is a screenshot of the new login page that will be in place starting 8 am, Aug. 26 2015 (click to enlarge):
There will be some exceptions:
- University of Colorado Hospital employees will still need to log in the old way, using their username of: letter H followed by their UCH employee ID number (eg: Hxxxxxx). Password is user’s last name.
- Volunteer Clinical Faculty (VCF program) will continue to log in with their assigned ID number as user name and last name as password.
Prefer the old way?
- As this is a “soft launch” , the old way of logging in will still work for a limited time only: user name as employee ID number, and last name as password.
- However, if you had a web browser automatically enter your login and password, you will need to clear out the saved password. If you have any trouble with this, please call our library Service Desk for directions on clearing saved password from various browsers.
